Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Sophia Loren are celebrities admired by everyone by their feminine appearances. Perhaps the most important reason why they attract so much attention is their hourglass shaped body with their slim waists and wide hips.
When we hear the term “plastic surgery”, many of us think of rhinoplasty, breast enhancement or tummy tuck surgery. Well, did you think you are that your hips could be nicer on the operating table?
Apart from breast augmentation surgery that has existed for many years; there are also procedures to change the body contour in the butt and hips to obtain an hourglass body contour.
Butt esthetic applications, which are ideal procedures to possess the body you have always dreamed of, makes your hip look more attractive with beautiful curves and you will have a body in which you will feel better.
Recently developed plastic surgery techniques, esthetically provides the opportunity to expand the hip. In butt esthetic surgery, traditional applications focus on soft tissue and use fat transfer method.
One of the preferred methods in butt esthetics is the esthetic surgery performed with silicone butt prostheses. In these operations, the silicon prostheses similar to those used in breast augmentation surgery are generally used. This creates a more natural looking hip and a more natural feeling
How is Buttock Augmentation Performed Using Silicone?
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia in order to make the hips appear more shaped and wider. During the procedure, your doctor makes an incision at a point close to the hip region where the silicone is placed in order to ensure that the prosthesis remains permanently below the butt muscle.
The same application may be required in the other buttock to create a natural look. Silicones are sometimes placed under the skin to create a smoother appearance in the hip area
Although there is some risk and a long recovery period associated with butt lift practices, the healing process is less challenging than similar silicone applications. This is because there is less nerve in the hip area.
Furthermore, silicones are not generally placed deeply. Therefore, the risk of potential complications is less. However, it is advisable to wear special protective clothing and avoid coercive exercises, especially within the first 1-2 months
Injection of Fat in Buttock Augmentation
One of the preferred esthetic applications in butt lift surgery is fat injections. During this process, the fat taken from the lumbar region by liposuction is purified by filtration; and injected into the outer area of the hip to create an ideal hip appearance. This method is also called fat grafting. It is possible to obtain a hip look almost like a Brazilian woman with fat injections made in sufficient amounts in the butt lift procedure.
Butt lift procedures with fat transfer is not recommended for patients with low body fat because it is necessary to have a sufficient amount of fat in such areas as the abdomen, hips and leg circumference to allow this fat to be absorbed and filled in the buttock area. On the other hand, harvesting fat grafts for use in butt aesthetics provides additional benefit for those who want to have a slimmer body appearance by reducing the fat in other parts of the body.
- Since there any incision is not made during the fat transfer process, it carries less risk than silicone applications. The risk factor will increase with too many fat injections.
- In these applications, the complete recovery time varies between 6-8 weeks
- In the first days after the procedure, while sitting and standing, do not act hastily and do not move fast. If necessary, ask someone for help.
- Injecting synthetic materials into the hips or buttocks can result in hazardous reactions and poor results! Many scientific articles have proved this fact.
- The use of a substance, such as a collagen, as a hip filler will be extremely costly as the procedure requires regular repetition
If you prefer to use fat transfer in the butt lift surgery, you should make sure that you have enough fat in the body for injection.
